I don't know what to say. Let's see...
My name is Dani, I'm 26, I'm a girl with a boys name, and I like crafty things.
I love all things asian. Everything from the music to the cinema, the food, and especially the men. Most people find that odd about me.
I collect all things The Goonies. I have everything from the limited 1985 drinking glasses from pizza hut, to lightswitch plates, and t-shirts.
I have a vintage Velvet Elvis hanging in my living room.
I love to make retro, kitchy, gothy, piratey, adult, themed things. Not all at once, though that would be fantastic if I could make it work.
I love stuffies, but unfortunately can not sew to save my life. If anyone wants to do a private swap I make all kinds of other things. Maybe something you love but can't make. PM me if you're interested.
I have a soft spot for cute red headed guys like Eric Stoltz and Alan Tudyk.
I love to play old nes and snes games. Especially Super Street Fighter.
I melt for guys with Scottish or Irish accents.
I want a pet hedgehog.
I love 50's kitsch.
If I coud only drink one thing for the rest of my life its a tie between iced tea or orange juice.
I'm a coffee whore.
I like to make things for people.
I'm fairly heavily tattooed. My entire back is covered in a giant piece of Geishas. It's actually the middle panel of a 3 panel piece my grandma stitched back in the 70's. When she died I got the middle panel on my back.
I collect comic and movie figurines. For instance, Mr. T, Jareth from Labyrinth, and Beetlejuice are staring down at me right now from above my desk.
Dave Mckean is one of my favorite artists of all time. The combo of him and Neil Gaiman is heaven. As is the combo of Tim Burton and Danny Elfman.
Also, I'm still kind of a newbie, but I am very eager to get in on some swaps. So please don't automatically discount me because I haven't had a chance to really build up my ratings too much.
Furthermore I've been having a LOT of trouble with the postal service lately. Things have been getting damaged and sent back to me mostly, but I've also had the non-deliverable address even though I put the correct one on the package, as well as them just losing things. If any of that does happen I will send out a new one. Ask just about all of the people I've swapped with so far. I think only one thing ever actually went how it was supposed to and showed up on time. Please just message me before giving me a 1 or a no send so I can try and rectify the matter.
Dir en Grey, Portishead, Brian Setzer, Depeche Mode, Placebo, Billie Holiday, Otis Redding, Asian Kung Fu Generation, Polysics, Tiger Army, The Cure, Marvin Gaye, The Doors, Kidney Thieves, Bif Naked, Snake River Conspiracy, Horrorpops, NIN, Rasputina, Hall and Oates, Oingo Boingo, The Beatles, Tom Waits, Nico Vega, Deathcab for Cutie, Phantom Planet, Modest Mouse, Led Zeppelin, Kiss, Ella Fitzgerald, Glenn Miller Orchestra, and much much more but those are a few. I'm also a sucker for a good mix cd, and I'm a movie soundtrack junkie.
I'm a movie fiend. I'm practically a walking movie encyclopedia. Here's a very shortened list of some of my favorites.
The Goonies, Serenity, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, The Other Sister, Foxfire, Trainspotting, Labyrinth, Poolhall Junkies, Boondock Saints, Harry Potter Series, Tropic Thunder, Death to Smoochy, Equilibrium, Little Women, Mirrormask, Cherish, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Dumb and Dumber, Flawless, I am Sam, The Returner, House of Flying Daggers, Vampire Effect, Rain Man, The Awakening, Silence of the Lambs, The Incredibles, Finding Nemo, Alice in Wonderland (my favorite version is the 80's tv version), American History X, Battle Royale, Rounders.
Firefly, Buffy, Angel, Dollhouse, Dexter, Lie to Me, Weeds, The Mentalist, Hell's Kitchen, Kitchen Nightmares, and Top Chef.
I mostly make decopaged things, like scrabble tile pendants, coasters, mosaics, but I like to do other things.
I love knitted and crocheted things but I have yet to learn to do either of them. I can't seem to get the two needles down for knitting. I love to receive knitted and crocheted things though.
I pretty much love anything someone handmade and wants to give me.
Anything to do with the Following.
I'm very sensitive to floral smells, and do not like them. I probably won't sign up for anything scent related, but if I do please PM to make sure what you'd like to send isn't going to give me a migraine.
Though I love asian stuff, I don't read manga, watch a lot of anime. I know people who do though so if some gets sent I will be more than happy to re-gift or swap it out to someone else.
I hate raspberry and melons, so if its a tea swap please don't give me raspberry zinger or something.
I don't like dotee dolls, I think they're creepy.
I HATE clowns its the only part of the circus I can't stand.
I don't really like pink, but it depends on how its used.
I'm not that picky. I just don't want anything smelly that's going to give me a headache. I can re-gift/swap just about anything else.
Also don't worry about me giving you a bad rating if I get something I personally don't care for. I appreciate that anyone spent time and effort to make and send me something.
I feel kind of odd making one of these, but a lot of swaps want you to have one, I also linked my wishpot account on as well.
Ephemera of any kind that I can collage with
Scrapbooking paper of any kind
Illustrated pages from old childrens/fairytale books.
Anything with owls on it.
Markers/Colored Pencils/Ink Pads.
I am currently in love with the clear re-usable stamps you can stick to an acrylic block. I'd love to expand my collection.
Decorative origami paper. They work great for the necklaces I make.
Scrabble/Dominos/Mah-jong Tiles. I make jewelry with them.
Magazines like Giant Robot and Juxtapoz. Again I love their material for collaging and what not.
Any kind of embellishments. You can never have to many. You never know who you'll get paired up with and when they'll come in handy.
Felt of any color.
Brads decorative and plain
Vintage Lucite Beads
Embroidery Floss of any color
Swaps I was flaked on.
